Purple Magnolia Thank You Card

Happy Friday!! I have a super pretty and springy card to start off the holiday week. This is another sneak peek of a fabulous stamp set in the new catalog. One of my favorites already!

For this card, I stamped the magnolia image in Versamark and embossed with white powder on Shimmery card stock. I then used my aqua painter to color it in. The colors I used are: Purple Posy, Highland Heather, Gorgeous Grape, Soft Sea Foam and Granny Apple Green. These purples work fabulous together!!

On the Gray Granite card stock,  I stamped the image multiple times to make my own DSP of sorts. I stamped the image in Gray Granite ink which was stamped off once on scrap paper so it wasn't too harsh.

Some of the embellishments are also from the new catalog. That is new lace trim and the ribbon behind the Thanks is also new. AND one other new item are those fantastic Stitched Nested Labels dies where I stamped "thanks" on. These are going to be another item you will probably see me use a lot too!! :)

This was just a quick post for you. Enjoy your weekend!

Magnolia Mother's Day

Hello!! Happy May!! It's the middle of May already and the new Stampin' Up! catalog will be live in just a few short weeks. While I should be playing with some of my favorites that are retiring, I just had to use the new Magnolia dies to make these little 3-d frames for Mother's Day. Mikaela from The Crafty Oink Pen had made these super cute frames on her blog a few weeks ago. I just loved them and wanted to try to make them too. She was nice enough to share the instructions to make the frames so I got right to work making my own. They were so easy to make!

After I made the frames, I knew I wanted to add magnolias to the middle. For the Navy frame, I just added one large magnolia in the middle. After I made the flower, I stamped the image from the Good Morning Magnolia set on to Granny Apple Green card stock and then cut it out with the coordinating dies. Since I only needed the leaves, I just cut those apart and added them to the back of the magnolia. I also added some cute cork embellishments that will be in the new catalog. Aren't they adorable?!?

The Crumb Cake frame is similar to the navy except that I added a smaller magnolia (and I didn't use the cork embellishments). For both frames I cut out "friend" from the Well Written framelits. Then I stamped one of the sentiments from the Well Said set on to Purple Posy card stock and cut out the words. One thing to note, Purple Posy may now be my new favorite color!! :) It's one of the new In Colors in the 2019 - 2020 catalog. It's a nice light purple that I think will go well with so many things!! I love it!

The center of these flowers use the Gold Faceted Gems. Also, the Pool Party card stock was embossed with the Tin Tile embossing folder. (Can you see how lovely that purple is?)

The center of this flower also uses a new item from the upcoming catalog. They are called Perennial Essence Floral Centers. They are fun fuzzy centers that are perfect for flowers!

Just one more look at the frame. How cute are these going to be on your wall!

I love how these came out. I may have to make one for myself to hang on my wall. Who wouldn't love looking at these magnolias!

Thanks for stopping by!
